We are saddened to share the news of the passing of Tim Sickinger on Tuesday, December 9th. He was preceded in death by three days by his wife of 54 years, Susie.
Tim was General Manager of Bozell Omaha from 1987 until 1997.
He was a product of the last of the old-school “Mad Men” era of advertising, putting in more than 20 years with Ogilvy & Mather in New York and London before bringing his considerable charm and talents to Omaha, where we needed him most.
Under his leadership, Bozell flourished. New business wins came left and right, profits grew and creative accolades showered in, but most importantly, Tim fostered an environment where everyone felt challenged and empowered to do their best – knowing that they would have his support (even if he didn’t always understand exactly what we trying to do.) He got the big picture, and set us on the right track.
Timothy J. Sickinger, you will be missed. Thanks for the time you shared with us.
